Gal with a Gun

I believe it is very important to know how to safely and responsibly shoot a gun. Just knowing how to shoot one can give you a sense of safety, and it is a smart idea to just learn how to use one in case you ever need to. The more that I learn about different guns, the more I want to learn, and it is as simple as that.

I'm thrilled with the timing on this photo, taken the exact instant that I fired - check out the smoke and the bullet casing actually being ejected in mid-air. How cool.

Target practice is the newest addition to my collection of interests & skills, and I'm probably going to join a Shooting Range or Gun Club so that I can try out more rifles than I already have. Once you know what you are doing and you are above-all, being safe, target-practice can be quite addictive and incredibly great fun.

I loved the timing of that picture. I feel every person if they choose to have firearms should learn to use them responsibly such as you are doing.

Living in Houston and knowing that if need to I can defend myself gives me piece of mind.

The thought of *you* having a gun doesn't bother me at all, but the weapons we have nowadays are so capable - one insane person out of ten thousand can become a tremendous problem if he is armed. Doug

i think that everyone should know how to use a firearm. i was taught at a very early age how to safely use one and will teach my children the same. the best gun control is knowledge.
